Album Notes

A member of Small Faces, which became Faces when Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood joined the band, Ian ‘Mac’ McLagan is a rock’n’roll icon.

Mac co-wrote many Faces hits, including “Cindy Incidentally,” “You’re So Rude,” “Borstal Boys” and “Three Button hand Me Down.” His distinctive Wurlitzer electric piano can be heard on the Faces “Stay With Me” and the Rolling Stones’ smash “Miss You.” It was Mac’s trademark B3 you heard on Small Faces’ “Itchycoo Park,” Rod Stewart’s “Maggie May” and “You Wear It Well” among many others.

Aside from his brilliant work touring and recording with the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, David Lindley, Paul Westerberg, John Hiatt, Taj Mahal, Billy Bragg and Patty Griffin, Mac has released five critically acclaimed solo albums, highlighting his career as a singer-songwriter and an artist in his own right: Troublemaker, Bump In The Night, Last Chance To Dance, Best Of British & Rise & Shine!

Mac’s sixth and finest solo CD, Spiritual Boy - an appreciation of Ronnie Lane, features his fabulous Bump Band: “Scrappy” Jud Newcomb, Don Harvey and Mark Andes, and is a loving tribute to his old friend, and features songs written by one of the best-loved rock’n’rollers of our time. Spiritual Boy was released on April 1, 2006 to celebrate what would have been Ronnie Lane’s 60th birthday.

Mac was presented with the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for his outstanding contribution to British music in 1996, and his outrageous autobiography, All The Rage is published by Pan/Macmillan. He produced the Faces four CD boxed set, Five guys walk into a bar... for Rhino Records, and was inducted into the Texas Hall of Fame in 2004. He received a rare honor on April 6th, 2006, when it was proclaimed 'Ian 'Mac' McLagan Day' in Austin Texas.

Spiritual Boy is Overdue
Spiritual Boy is a great collection of hand picked Ronnie Lane songs. All the tunes are performed with a new twist and warmth that only an old friend could do. The songs are rough around the edges and sensitive at the same time. April Fool breaks new ground as it crawls and grooves. Although not an acoustic version, Ian McLagan's rendition packs a wallop that does artistic justice to this fine composition. Spiritual Boy is a must for all Ronnie Lane and Ian McLagan fans alike.

A worthy tribute to a brilliant songwriter
Going into the CD, I was a bit unsure that Ian McLagan had the right voice to carry his fallen mate's songs. I couldn't have been more mistaken. Adding to that the always brilliant musicianship of the Bump Band makes "Spiritual Boy" a must-have for anybody who claims to enjoy music.

Glad & Sorry
This is a truly wonderful CD - straight from the heart where we all hold Ronnie's memory - warm, sensitive and totally appropriate. Mac does a superb job with the songs that we love so much but adds something to each that highlights the relationship between the two. Glad I bought it & sorry that Ronnie has gone. But this magical CD keeps him very much alive. Thanks Mac !

Great CD evokes the spirit of Ronnie Lane perfectly
All great tracks but I must single out 'Kuschty Rye'as the one that epitomises all that was superb about Ronnie Lane's music. Long may he be remembered.


This excellent recording is for any Spiritual Gal or Guy who appreciates the finest in songwriting and musicianship, along with an incredible amount of soul and feeling !
Bravo Mac and Gang ! Ronnie is smiling down on us !


this is the best that mac has done
i have heard the clips now i need more - this is classic!!

Spiritual Boy is a brilliant collection of songs that will certainly get trapped inside your brain for years to come. The band is tight with a "garage band" edge behind cool scrappy vocals that blend rock, blues and some country tones. Although all 11 tracks are worthy of their own discussion I am especially blown away by the soulful ballad approach to Itchycoo Park inside it's new arrangement...a true masterpiece. Check out Nowhere to Run with those great background vocals and let's not forget Hello Old Friend..if you understand the friendship that's felt within that song you can't help but get a tear in your eye. Unfortunately it is so hard to get records like Spiritual Boy on the radio these days...for if it were 25-30 years ago we'd be hearing it everyday. Great job guys!!
